I should point out a few things here:
(1) I think this bug can be punted, given a small change to nautilus
and gnome-terminal to make them attempt to handle not being launched
with startup notification--similar to what Galeon and Epiphany now do.

(2) As far as I know, Mozilla and firefox are still basically broken
in this respect and there's not a lot we can do about it; those two
apps need to support startup-notification as launchees (including the
timestamp part of startup notification).  Without that, there's no way
to get them to work, whether they are launched with
startup-notification or not.  This should probably be in the release
notes in the known issues section.

(3) Crispin and Christian have already added code to Galeon and
Epiphany to try to make them handle not being launched with startup
notification (from a quick glance at the code, I think they could do a
little bit better, but nothing to worry about before 2.10).  Thus,
when you open a webpage from various apps such as Evolution and your
web browser is one of these two it will basically work.
